Kinda hard to believe that I've been working in my office for four months already. Equally hard to believe how well I've been received. Not that I was expecting to not be well received, I just thought there would be more of a breaking in period, but I guess, when you arrive to work early each work day, and you are willing to stay late and work as many extra days as they have to offer, you have a greater chance of becoming a favorite. These days, especially because we are all hustling to get what we can find, and keep what we've managed to get, there aren't many who can say that they enjoy what they are currently doing. For now, I can honestly say that I do. What's not to enjoy? I was fortunately enough to land in a Village, where the people are for the people. The stress is minimal (for now), I am learning new things, and being rooted in this setting sure did help me in my apartment search.

I'm looking forward to seeing what all I can take from this place and its people in the next 11 months, and I am eager to reinvest all that I learn into a company that has invested in me.


  1. Good for you, Barbara. It's (unfortunately) rare that one can truly bloom where they are planted. I'm very happy for you, and look forward to seeing what the next 11 months bring, as well.

  2. I'm happy for you, B. It's well-deserved after what took place, at the other place. Finally. Just be a sponge while there and take in all that you can. I'm glad you found a place that is worthy of you and where you are appreciated. Again...well deserved. Keep me posted.

    Love ya!

  3. @ T: Thanks. With the crazy office politics that run wild in these places, its nice to be situated around folk who are much like the folk in my personal life =). The ways that they've already reached out to me has cemented my place with them for the next 11 months, lol.

    @ Traci: I do feel appreciated Sis, I'm shown it. My position is minimal, as I'm actually outsourced assistance, but this team has shown that they are just that. It doesn't matter the source that brought me there, I'm a full fledged member of the team. I'm diggin' it.
